BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (NASA) – Engineers and technicians are continuing the Artemis I wet dress rehearsal test, which began on April 1 and conclude on April 3.  

This close-up view shows the Space Launch System rocket for Artemis I inside the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The wet dress rehearsal began at 5 p.m. EDT on April 1 with “call to stations,” when members of the launch control team at Kennedy Space Center in Florida arrived to the firing rooms in the Launch Control Center and start the approximately two-day test launch countdown.

The team will target a two-hour test window that opens at 2:40 p.m. EDT April 3.

The countdown for the wet dress rehearsal will follow a similar timeline as the team will use on the day of launch.
